Perranporth as I saw it
Definitely felt refreshed today after a change of scene and routine last night. Didn't have loads of sleep but don't seem to need as much as sleeping really soundly - good quality sleep. Had cows hollering over the wall in the night and then running down the field - like ringing the doorbell and running away! Woke to lots of rain so stayed put until it cleared about 9am. Showery in the morning. Nice to linger in Trevaunance bistro and reflect. Stroll onward though some steep climbs to Perranporth
. I took my time as I realised a big bit of me doesn't want this to end. Some thunder just a little inland though as I walked in towards Perranporth so had to hurry a little as I didn't want to get caught on the cliffs in that sort of weather.
Last camp stop was at Mawgan Porth
Begrudged not being able to linger more as I had the time to do so. I've enjoyed being on my own though enjoyed company too. Had lots of giggles and LOL despite the pain. Made me realise that I'm essentially a very happy person even in adverse circumstances. Not regrets about doing it but not sure I would again in a hurry. When I got to Perranporth, I made straight for the surf shop where we'd seen some scales the night before - carrying 3 STONE!! I weigh 8 stone. Glad I didn't know that at the start as I would have thought it impossible. Mind you, I might have been content with less miles if I'd known. Was ready for a dip in the sea at Perranporth but looked too crowded to be much fun. Also felt an almost irresistable urge to do a cartwheel to celebrate but too embarrassed on my own (Saved it for the next night on Mawgan Porth beach in the sunset) so enjoyed a cider at the beach bar then people watching on the beach while I waited to hear from Pete again re: a lift to a last site he knows of further up the coast. Looking forward to a day doing nothing?? Might have a stroll along a cliff!! Weather glorious in Perranporth Things I've most enjoyed: scenery, own company, meeting/chatting with new people, people watching, giggles, being outside, time to listen to/appreciate God and all He shares with us. Feel VERY priveleged. Grateful to Rob and family too for letting me go and not putting dampers on it by expressing worry about 'risks' Approx 46 miles
